    What do they say? (8-second extract)

    Hello everyone,

    Here is an extract in which I can't catch every word.

    This is what I hear:

    "Belgium ... has ... dance music as it ever has been."
    "I like ... I like it, I don't care what ... but I like what I hear."

    So, can anyone please help me to fill in the gaps?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    not a teacher

    The female voice is pretty garbled, but this is how I hear it.

    Belgium's as important to dance music as it ever has been.
    I…I…then, so ok, I like it, I don't care what they play but I like what I hear.

    I think the woman says I..I guess at the beginning, but it is very garbled. The rest sounds like JMurray's transcription to me.
